    It's about big ladies who date skinny guys. They say its not about fetishes, men whoa re in love with big women are not about fetishes. I really don't have a problem with men who fetishize big women, if they prefer big ladies whats wrong with that?

    Anyways, not sure if I will watch the show. It looks kind of boring, i mean how exciting can it get just watch 2 mixed weight people date. Its not a big deal to me.

    However I brought it up because I do think its a big deal for Christians and religious folks in particular who are conservative in their thinking. I worry about dating a skinny guy, because my conservative Christian sisters have the idea big women should be dating big men not just big bigger.

    They tend to think women need to date down, someone lesser good looking, way lesser, they think its natural. Well, women don't enjoy sex so they should date men way older then them, I'm sure at least one of my sisters thinks I should be with a 70 year old.

    Some of them think I should be dating a 400 or 500 pound man someone in bed, who needs to live in a hospital.
    My friend Rose is so spitting mad about this she does not want to date at all.Everyone is trying to get her married off, i think people in my Moms AA meeting would like to get me married off. Again its always to someone who is way less then I would want or my friend Rose would want.Id rather be alone.

    Whats wrong with fetishizing big women?

    I will watch the show once or twice but i'm not sure if there's anything to be gotten from it.It is controversial though watching a fat lady date a big guy but not watching a big guy date a skinny lady.If you look at our sitcoms a lot of them have fat slobby guys with skinny pretty women.

    People should date who they want. You're right that ugly, old and out of shape men are often given a pass for dating younger, more attractive women while women are criticized relentlessly for doing the same. It's a sexist double standard.

    YEa I am not sure I see the point, I am on board with the idea of big ladies dating wh they want including good looking men however I'm with you, why do we need a show? If we had a show about mixed races dating it would be better more controversial, Africans Americans dating caucasions. Looks boring to me but I will watch a few shows. I guess there's a few religious nuts it might shock, oh my a big fat girls dating good looking men! The horrors! My sisters would not agree with it.

    The proposed concept of the show does put me to sleep.

    That'd be a good show. Also make the show informative rather than in an "OMG, look!" sort of way.
